Open Water European Junior Championships 2009

4/5 July 2009 – Porec

A team of some of Britain’s most exciting young open water swimmers will test themselves against Europe’s best in Croatia. A six-strong British Gas Junior Open Water team, all of whom competed in the LEN Open Water Cup in Israel last month, includes Craig Hamilton who managed an impressive fifth place in the men’s event in Israel.

Some of the British Gas team will have their sights set on London 2012 and will be looking for a good performance in Croatia to prepare themselves for a bigger stage.

The British Gas Junior Open Water team consists of:

Craig Hamilton – Warrender Baths
Alfie Howes – Kingston Royals
Gareth Keating – Leicester Penguins
Catherine Marcoft – Rochdale
Kayleigh Dawson – City of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne
